What did we get ourselves into?

What did we get ourselves into? It's a whole lotta dirt for a girl that doesn't "do" dirt. The end result is going to be sooooo worth it though.

BEFORE...DURING.... Our backyard's getting a brand new look.. A huge thank you to our future-sister-in-law's family for coming up and helping excavate and rid us of the disgusting iceplant/yucca tree, cinder block wall thing the previous owner had constructed.

Stay tuned...


  1. Yes, there will be a ton of work but it will be so nice when all done and completed and no more of that old fashioned yucky ice plant!!
    Hey I have plenty of agaves if you need some free plants. LOL

  2. no more succulents!!! They are the devil. Why Mr Gurney thought they were a good idea, we'll never know.

    With every project we complete it becomes more and more of OUR home. Who knows by the time we finish remodeling everything, we'll be ready to start again, just like you.

  3. Yikes dirt! Where are you laying in the sun between now and when the dirt pile becomes new backyard paradise? =) Although, to be honest, from up here where most apartments in the city have no back yard to speak of, I'd love a weekend gardening, so working in the yard sounds like fun work to me!! And good exercise, which I could use a little of lately.

  4. P.S. I think that was a run-on sentence so I hope no English teachers read your blog.
